Famous quotes containing the words courts and/or special:

    The decisions of law courts should never be printed: in the long run, they form a counterauthority to the law.
    Denis Diderot (1713–1784)

    Nature is a setting that fits equally well a comic or a mourning piece. In good health, the air is a cordial of incredible virtue. Crossing a bare common, in snow puddles, at twilight, under a clouded sky, without having in my thoughts any occurrence of special good fortune, I have enjoyed a perfect exhilaration. I am glad to the brink of fear.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
